libGenome is a development library designed to make common operations on DNA and protein sequences easy. libGenome provides functionality to read and write sequence and annotation data in several file formats. It provides a common manipulation interface for sequence and annotation data in any supported file format. Some of the basic manipulation functionality offered by libGenome is concatenation, truncation, reverse complementation, and translation of sequences. It was intended to be used on genome size sequences and is optimized accordingly. This is a cross platform library written in ANSI C++ and is currently supported on any platform with gcc. Metrowerks CodeWarrior on Windows and Mac OS are also supported.
